REMINDER: State Route 88 closed near Tortilla Flat on Tuesday and Wednesday morning Two six-hour closures needed for rock removal

The Arizona Department of Transportation will be closing State Route 88 in both directions near Tortilla Flat from 6 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, June 12, and Wednesday, June 13, for rock removal as part of an ongoing highway improvement project.

Two temporary closures are needed to remove two boulders – Slide Rock and Dive Rock  – located adjacent to the road, just past the concrete ford east of Tortilla Flat. The boulders will be removed before chip seal work is applied later in the construction schedule.

No traffic will be allowed through the mile-long closure, which will be in place between milepost 213 and 214, with turn-arounds available for vehicles at both locations.
